The Word

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” – Revelation 3:20 (ESV)

Expedition

Mission: Kilimanjaro 2014

PRAY: For the church to grow and arise. Tanzania is reportedly half Christian, but only 8 percent of “believers” attend worship. The lack of Biblical knowledge, the need for discipleship, and lifestyle changes that provide a genuine witness of Christ to Muslims and animists are among the needs.

GIVE: To support an indigenous worker who will serve among the guides and porters employed on Africa’s highest mountain. Send donations to Climbing For Christ, c/o Mission: Kilimanjaro, P.O. Box 16290, Rochester, NY 14616-0290 USA. Or CLICK HERE and give online via PayPal.

GO: July 29-Aug. 12. The team will travel to Moshi and Marangu, meeting local members of Climbing For Christ, participating in annual evangelism training, and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro (19,340 feet/5,895 meters) via a seven-day route. There will be an optional three-day safari after the trek. Cost is estimated at US$4,400 (with about half of that for high summer airfare to Africa). This price does not include the optional safari. Email info@ClimbingForChrist.org to request a mission application.

Mission: Kilimanjaro 2014 (Part 2) Trip Report

Planting, watering, and God-given growth By Jordan Rowley C4C spiritual coordinator Even prior to departing for Tanzania on Nov. 10, the Lord instilled in me a humbling sense that I would be tasting fruit from work that had taken place long before my involvement. Indeed the fruit was sweet, as the planting and watering has been divinely directed since 1998 – when God first placed the vision of Climbing For Christ upon the heart of its founding president, Gary Fallesen. “We took our first mission team to Kilimanjaro in 2007. During that trip, God intersected the paths of G... Read more »

HIStory

Kilimanjaro holds a special place in the formation and growth of Climbing For Christ. As Gary Fallesen was training to climb Kilimanjaro in 1998, God spoke to him and told him to start a Christian climbing organization. From that meeting on a road, Climbing For Christ was eventually born. In the original “Mission: Vision,” written in 2004, Kilimanjaro was identified as a “model mission,” where we could serve the hundreds of guides and porters and reach tens of thousands of trekkers. In 2007, our first short-term team went to Kilimanjaro. As always, God had gone before ... Read more »
